Chupati or chapati is the same as roti. For a long time, I didn’t know roti is called chapati in many places. Corn-based chapati or roti is, you can say more of a delicacy than a staple in some north-western states, due to the cultivation there.
What would be more closer to tortillas I believe is the Indian flatbread roti. This is more common in India, not a delicacy that would be exported to western countries and smaller in size. Indian flours are mostly from wheat, there’s hardly any corn-based bread consumed by Indians.
While looking for some of the “en Espanol” comics on this site to brush up on my Espanol skills, GoComics recommended this one, and I’ve been hooked since. A brilliantly drawn and gripping story about the trials of the cutest kid I’ve ever read. This strip is educational, culturally informative, and funny all at the same time. I have been reading the past strips for the last few days, and I’ve just reached the present day. So, I’m feeling a little sad about having to wait for the next strips. Gracias, Senor Martin. Greetings from India.

I have this feeling that dad tricked these two into helping mom vacuum before they could watch TV again.
Naan is more of a delicacy, whereas roti is kind of a working-class staple.
Can’t help but appreciate your imagination. In one of the native Indian languages, Bengali, a radical poet had indeed compared the moon to a Roti, as seen by the people in a world full of hunger.
Pardon my translation:
“There’s no need for the softness of poems
Poetry, I’m giving you the day off,
A hungry world is only prosaic
where the full moon is like a charred bread”!
He “was wise in the ways of the wild”! Wow
The “Silver Bullet” tag should have been in the last panel.
From a place called “Hammerspace”, look it up!
